Illuminate Kindness

The fifth night of Chanukah has become a great opportunity to give back to the community and honor those who are not thanked enough.

Here are our Top 5 ideas for giving back on this night.

  • Thank a first responder. Bring a box of Joe or some healthy treats to the people who keep us safe. 
  • Look through your closets and find some warm items you no longer use to donate at a local facility- it will bring warmth during these cold days.
  • Have a bird feeder- fill it up. Don't forget to feed the animals too!
  • Is there a special teacher or friend who has made a difference in your life? Write them a personal note to let them know!
  • While it can feel like there is an abundance of food this time of year, so many are experiencing hunger. Look through your pantry and donate some non-perishable items to your local food pantry.
